    Now Trump wants a tariff on cars

    Wonder how long it will take him to reverse himself on this one?


    Republicans in Congress slam Trump probe of auto imports

    Congressional Republicans said it was unclear what Trump was aiming to accomplish with the probe, warning it could result in U.S. job losses, and with some suggesting it was a political tactic ahead of midterm elections in November.

    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said there was “no reason” to conduct a national security investigation of auto imports.

    “This appears to be either an attempt to affect domestic politics ahead of the election or for some other transactional purpose regarding ongoing trade discussions. This is a dangerous course and should be abandoned immediately,” Corker said in a statement.

    Donald Trump is a complete economics illiterate when it comes to tariffs. Clueless. Wharton has GOT to be ashamed that he ever went to their school.

    Wharton happily took Dad's money to give Donald a certificate.. and i'm sure they're not ashamed of that one bit.

    That Donald Trump is a graduate of Wharton injures their academic reputation.

    Surely you see that, yes?

    Most of Trump supporters do not even know that Donald Trump backed away from the tariffs he was to impose on China.

    I guarantee you most still believe the Trump tariffs are working to make America Great again.

    These new tariffs on cars are just more proof Trump is winning. Check your paychecks next week Trump supporters ...and see all of the jack Trump is putting in your wages.

    I'm also quite sure that the vast majority of Trump supporters believed that China was INCLUDED in the TPP agreement that Trump yanked America out of, whereas in FACT, China was quite deliberately left OUT of the TPP. It was actually an agreement among many East Asian and Pacific nations to ADDRESS China's unfair trade practices. DUH.
